Logan tops Foxes


April 21, 2019

PORTALES — Plenty of area schools saw plenty of highlights from their track and field stars Thursday at Greyhound Stadium. But both the boys and girls meets were stories of Longhorns besting Foxes.

Logan topped Fort Sumner in both meets, with the Longhorn boys edging the Foxes 83-81 and the Longhorn girls taking a more comfortable victory of 111-73.5 over the Vixens.

In boys action, the Longhorns took three of the four relays and had three athletes take five individual first-place finishes.

Dayson Day won the 100 (11.35) and long jump (20-6), while Jantzen Paris won the 200 (23.94) and 400 (51.94). Jordan Evans took the triple jump at 40-0.5.

Those performances helped in a narrow win over the Foxes, who had strength in numbers — particularly in the throwing events. Alex Moyer won the shot put at 42-8 as part of a 1-2-3 finish with Cory Terrell and J.D. Candela. Terrell won the discus at 121-11, as the Foxes had four of the top five with Sammy Baltazar, Moyer and Candeal. Logan’s Cristian Marizcal won the discus, (105-0.5), but the Foxes went 2-3-4-5 with Terrell, Jude Segura, Kane Burney and Daejon Coronado.

Devon Bailey won three events for Melrose, including both hurdle races (16.24 in the 110, 42.04 in the 300) and the high jump (5-10). Texico’s Gabe Dickerman easily won hte pole vault, jumping 11-6 to top his next two competitors by 18 inches.

The Longhorn girls had four individual wins, and claimed all four relays. Fort Sumner finished second in each relay, followed by Tatum in the 400 and Melrose in the 800, 1,600 and medley relays.

Logan got a 1-2-3 finish in the 100 with Destiney Cleveland (13.44) topping Cassidy Cordova (13.54) and Sierra Horne (13.55). Codova won the long jump at 15-10, while Jodi Vance was the only scorer in the pole fault (7-0). Jordan Hines won the high jump at 5-0, with Kambry Burns and Kassi Foote aiding in a 1-2-4 finish along with Tatum’s Madison Rice.

Texico senior Baylee Sours took the 200 (27.91) and 400 (1:02.74), and Melrose’s Hailey Martin won both hurdle races (18.24 in the 100, 53.77 in the 300).

Teghan Copeland won two events for the Vixens, taking the 1,600 at 6:28.98 and the 3,200 by more than a minute over the competition at 13:42.84.

Dora’s Randi Crandall won the triple jump at 30-10 and finished secnod to Cordova in the long jump at 14-8.5.
